So­lar in Hamil­ton?

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

Again Hamil­ton is giv­ing away tax breaks to sur­round­ing ar­eas. Hamil­ton is will­ing to de­stroy nu­mer­ous trees, which help con­trol runoff and flood­ing by let­ting Syn­nergy LLC in­stall 11,614 ground mounted so­lar pan­els on vir­gin land.

Res­i­dents who live in the area ex­press con­cern over flood­ing in the last num­ber of years due to the sur­round­ing As­sun­pink Creek and Miry Run.

Also, the num­ber of an­i­mal that will be dis­placed upon re­moval of the fauna.

Why don’t they just pur­chase it un­der Green Acres and leave it alone. Since Ewing and Lawrenceville are the ones get­ting tax re­lief let them build it over there.

— Yardville Res­i­dent

I don’t hon­estly know enough about this to have an opinion, but I am in­ter­ested to see what the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact stud­ies say. The de­vel­op­ers clearly think zero im­pact, the op­po­nents seem to think to­tal dis­as­ter. The truth, as usual, likely lies some­where in the mid­dle.
